About the Show

Black-ish is an American single-camera comedy series created by Kenya Barris which revolves around an African-American family man who struggles to gain a sense of cultural identity that both honours the past and embraces the future, whilst raising his kids in a predominantly white, upper-middle-class neighbourhood.

Like any parents, Andre "Dre" (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross) Johnson want to give their children the best. But their offspring's childhood is turning out to be much different than theirs.

They now realise at least two things: there is a price to pay for giving their children more than what they ever had, and these loving parents are totally unprepared for the fallout. "Pops" (Laurence Fishburne), Dre's dad, takes every opportunity to offer his old school opinion on family issues.

As the series begins Dre, an advertising exec, is happily anticipating a promotion at work, which would make him the firm's first African American senior vice president. Rainbow, an anesthesiologist, is looking forward to Dre's raise.

Meanwhile, Andre Jr. makes an announcement - he's converting to Judaism so he can have a Bar Mitzvah, like all his friends.

Black-ish stars Anthony Anderson as Andre "Dre" Johnson, Tracee Ellis Ross as Rainbow Johnson, Yara Shahidi as Zoey Johnson, Marcus Scribner as Andre Johnson, Jr., Miles Brown as Jack Johnson, Marsai Martin as Diane Johnson and special guest star, Laurence Fishburne.

Recurring guest stars include Peter Makenzie as Mr. Stevens, Andre's boss; and Jenifer Lewis as Ruby Johnson, Andre's mother.

Black-ish was created by Kenya Barris and is executive-produced by Barris, Larry Wilmore, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland and E. Brian Dobbins. The series is produced by ABC Studios.
